COVID-19 Updates

LTC Liability Letter – Democratic Leaders

We, the undersigned organizations write on behalf of the millions of men and women and the facilities on the frontlines of the national fight against COVID-19. Together, we represent more than 12 millionAmericans and their front line caretakers across 65,000 long-term care facilities, including doctors, medical directors, nurses, home health, hospice and palliative care organizations, skilled nursing facilities, long term care facilities, nursing homes, assisted living communities (including dementia and Alzheimer’s care), continuing care retirement communities, and independent senior living communities.

We are writing to respectfully request that Congress act to provide our members with reasonable liability protections during this health crisis by expanding the protections in section 3215 of the CARES Act to all health care professionals and front-line facilities.
